Sofia news Agency , 16 July 2010
The top-class world hotel brand Hilton will be represented for the first on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast with the opening of the “Doubletree by Hilton Varna” hotel in the Golden Sands resort.
The upcoming opening of the Doubletree by Hilton Varna was made public Friday at a news conference in the Golden Sands resort with the announcement of the signing of a franchising contract between Hilton Worldwide and Helios Hotels Jsc, a subsidiary of Tetrareal Jsc.
The famous Doubletree chocolate chip cookie, an icon of the hospitality of the brand, was introduced for the first time in Bulgaria at a special ceremony.
While the top global luxury hotel brands are present in Sofia, the Doubletree by Hilton Varna will be the first establishment of such class in Bulgaria outside of the capital.
“The new Doubletree by Hilton Varna is the fully renovated luxury part of the former Helios Spa & Resort Hotel. We have decided to perfect this part in order re-brand it, so we have invested in a number of improvements such as new fire and safety installations, new TV systems, or the Suite Dreams mattresses which are a must for the Doubletree brand, and are unique for Bulgaria in our hotel,” announced Dr. George Velchev, Chair of the Board of Directors of Tetrareal Jsc.
“Our company has made a considerable investment in Doubletree by Hilton Varna, especially given the fact that the hotel already had a five-star category. Our aim was to create a unique product for the Golden Sands resort and the Bulgarian Black Sea coast. We are glad that once again we will be pioneers with our world-class brand and services in the Golden Sands resort . Hilton has been selected many times as the most famous hotel brand in Europe and the world, and I am convinced that this product will enjoy an immediate success here since Bulgaria continues to offer the best quality at the best price among the European vacation destinations,” Velchev explained.
“The opening of Doubletree by Hilton Varna in 2010 reaffirms the stable development of the Doubletree brand in Europe. The European presence of the world hotel brand Doubletree by Hilton has marked considerable growth in the last few years,” said Claudio Sturm, the General Manager of the new Doubletree by Hilton Varna hotel in the Golden Sands resort.
Doubletree by Hilton Varna is located in a green area of the Golden Sands resort with a sea view. It features a fitness center equipped by top American producer Precor. It offers a direct access to the Aphrodite Beauty Spa & Health Clinic, a unique combination for the Bulgarian Black Sea coast of a spa and medical center located on a total of area of 2 300 square meters.
Among its many other amenities in the Doubletree style, the hotel grants its guests a free access to its own section of the beach at the Golden Sands resort.
